Biblical Musings 9

Church on the Traditional Site of the Sermon on the Mount
"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye and tooth for tooth,' but I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." Matthew 5:38-42 (NIV)

What does this passage mean? How should we apply it today?
